Our Latest Completed Project - Terre Terre in Brighton

Terre Terre Brighton - January 2013 Our latest kitchen installation was at the well known vegetarian restaurant Terre Terre in Brighton. Recently gutted in a fire, the kitchen at Terre Terre needed more than just new equipment; it needed new building work, plumbing, gas work electrics etc. The fire started when a pile of tea towels fresh from a tumble drier caught light. You can read about the fire here. Initially, John Baxter, the owner of UtensilsDirect, surveyed the site and knew immediately that it would be a massive job. After many meetings with the owners and relevant builders etc, a plan was drawn up and all new kitchen equipment was then subsequently quoted for. Many amendments later, the designs and quotes were finalized, and the work began. Lots of snags were encountered along the way. Eventually, all the new equipment arrived and was installed by Utensils Direct experienced commercial kitchen installation team. The new extraction canopy was fabricated by AVE of Burgess Hill. You can read all about the fire and installation here. Some photos of the fire damaged kitchen can be seen below. And after our installation.
